The Canadian Country Music Association's CCMA Songwriting Series has long been one of the most popular components of the annual Country Music Week. Here the audience gets to hear the stories behind the songs, and get inspired by the artistry behind the craft.
Country stars to have participated in recent years include Deric Ruttan, Kristian Bush (Sugarland), Patricia Conroy, Jason Blaine, Madeline Merlo, Jessica Mitchell, and The Washboard Union.
Each year, the CCMA solicits submissions from its members who excel at the craft of songwriting and want to share their stories with audiences during our annual event.
The 2019 CCMA Songwriters' Series, as part of Country Music Week in Calgary, will feature three sessions: Thursday, September 5; Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7. Each session will showcase eight (8) artists; four (4) of whom will be selected from submissions received, and four (4) of whom will be decided upon by a CCMA-appointed talent advisory committee made up of impartial industry members.
Submissions received for the 2019 CCMA Songwriters' Series will be reviewed by an impartial industry-led jury and successful applicants will be notified of their opportunity to showcase as part of the event this spring.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 8, at 2:00 p.m. ET (no exceptions). Submit here
